Why Try Acupuncture

Acupuncture for some can be a holistic, drug-free pain relief option. It aims to address the underlying cause of the condition, as well as the presenting symptoms.

It may be able to assist with both physical and emotional health as well as general overall well-being.

Evidence & Research

A review of research by the    Acupuncture Evidence Project  in 2017 showed evidence with various levels of effect for 117 conditions. It found Acupuncture can be used with effectiveness in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, from musculoskeletal, gastronomical issues to mental health, stress, pain and gynaecological concerns
